From a September 1897 supplement to the North Vernon Plain Dealer

Proprietors of an Up-to-Date Livery and Feed Business
    In the accompanying illustration the readers of this edition will readily recognize the elegant new Stein Block in which is to be found the livery stable of Gant & Eastman. This stable is one of the most complete and best stocked in this section of the country. The buggies are practically new and lightrunning, and the stock of horses has been selected with an eye single to the comfort of the patrons of the stable.
    The lower floor of the stable is divided into offices, harness and feed rooms, and stalls. An elevator is used to hoist the buggies to the second floor where they are stored. The firm enjoys a large and constantly growing trade and makes a specialty of catering to commercial travelers. For this work they have light road wagons especially adapted for carrying trunks, sample cases, etc. Their scale of prices is very low. The above named firm is composed of Messrs. E. Gant and Charles Eastman, the partnership being formed August 23, of the present year.
